Collaborative, hands-on learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics for all levels of experience!
Tech Camp features a dynamic, project-based format that emphasizes experiential learning, creative thinking and problem solving. Students will explore a subject by working as part of a team to investigate and respond to a complex question, challenge or problem. Day and residential options available.
Topics include robotics, coding, mechanical engineering, rocketry, environmental science, kinetics, structural engineering, transportation engineering and more. New this year are innovative projects funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health that focus on regenerative medicine and biofabrication.
More about our programs:
- TechSplorers. A program for students entering grades 5-8 that explores a wide range of STEM subject areas through day-long, hands-on activities. Subject areas may include forensic science, computer coding, robotics, environmental science, structural engineering and more. Each day is a new adventure! Need-based full scholarships (covers one week of camp with the option for residency) are available.
- TechVenturers. A program for students entering grades 8-10. Partcipants focus on a single, in-depth, weeklong project of their own choosing related to various areas of science, engineering and technology. Participants will engage in the engineering design process, problem solving exercises and a camp-wide poster presentation session at the end of the week. Need-based full scholarships (covers one week of camp with the option for residency) are available.
- TechLeaders. A program for students entering grades 10-12. Much like the TechVenturers program, partcipants focus on a single, in-depth, weeklong project of their own choosing related to various areas of science, engineering and technology, as well as leadership and entrepreneurship activities for those considering a STEM-related career. Need-based full scholarships (covers one week of camp with the option for residency) are available.
- Dinah Whipple STEAM Academy. A program with two separate tracks, one for students entering grades 7-10, another for students entering grades 10-12. Participants explore science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM), as well as the Black experience. All associated programs are offered at no cost to participants.
